FOUR DAYS WITH HEMINGWAY'S GHOST ((Tom Winton) starts our journey. Fictional hero Jack Phelan and Ernest Hemingway travel to the author's old haunts and meet his friends. We move to GIFT OF THE MAGI AND OTHER STORIES (SCHOLASTIC CLASSICS version preferred) by O .Henry. This collection gives us a rich sample of the author's storytelling. Our third book is THE SECRET GARDEN (Frances Hodgson Burnett); a short-tempered Mary Lennox is transformed as she discovers secrets. The last book is ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE (Anthony Doerr); a blind girl and an orphaned German boy experience World War II.
